Corimbo is a very highly-regarded wine in top-end restaurants due to its quality and pleasantness. It encapsulates to perfection the countryside in the northern part of the Ribera del Duero, encompassing all its ancestry, and always with great finesse. An abundance of ripe black fruit and the oak very well integrated at all times, creating a serious and elegant wine.
What does this wine taste like?
A strong colour, a Picota cherry shade overall with dark red at the rim. It reveals an intense nose, brimming with red and black fruit (cherries and blackberries). It has great expressivity, bringing to mind aromatic plants and the smell of pine groves after rain. The creamy oak is very well-integrated, letting the fruit and the countryside show through. It has plenty of volume, mouth-filling, giving a sensation of fullness with every sip.
Drinking and storing
Tannins are present when it’s first released, but of very good quality and bring necessary structure to a wine that’s fresh and elegant, ready for immediate enjoyment but also with a long life ahead.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker
I do wish my partner would stop raiding the christmas box
After just one sip I thought we really should be saving this for Christmas. I thought it was as good as some of the more expensive Riberas I had ordered. Smooth tannins.
First time I have tried this wine - can't praise it enough. It came at a good price and has a great taste. Highly recommended.
Excellent wine, the essence of a good Ribera
This is a delicious Ribera red wine - easy on the palate, and always a delight for guests. It is one of my favourites.
Always a very reliable traditional old style ribera del duero wine that I regularly buy
Un vin plus frais et moins structurés que Corimbo I. C'est un vin d'une belle intensité, aux fruits rouges très frais, principalement cerises et mûres, avec quelques notes florales. Le bois est très bien intégré après ses 14 mois en barrique, dans le respect du fruit et avec une note crémeuse très agréable. En bouche, le fruit est présent avec la sensation de fraîcheur que donnent la cerise bien mûre, les notes de mûres sauvages et une teneur en tanin très fine.
